The original recipe calls for the flat serrated pattern from a cookie press. If you don’t have a cookie press, roll the dough out flat onto wax paper. Cut into long thin strips. (Final cookie shape will be thin crisp rectangles.) Place on cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 8-10 min..
Cut into rectangles while still warm. Remove from sheet with spatula. Let cool..
Store in plastic bag to stay crisp..
UPDATE: I’ve got a cookie press, but lost the flat, serrated pattern thingy, so I rolled them out.
If you want to sprinkle some confectioner’s sugar on the cookies and don’t like dealing with messy sifters, try sifting them using a tea strainer and a spoon.
